The Jazz Show Episode October 22, 2012

Broadcast on 22-Oct-2012

9:03pm - 11:59pm

Two of the finest and most innovative trumpeters in Jazz are on tap here. Roy "Little Jazz" Eldridge and John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie. Roy was the elder of the two and came up in the 30's during the "swing era". It had been said and it is a generalization with some merit that Roy is the link between Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. Dizzy Gillespie needs no introduction as he is one of the pioneers of Modern Jazz and one of the most brilliant and innovative trumpeters of any era. These two Jazz Masters are accompanied with skill and inspiration by Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass and Louis Bellson on drums so it doesn't get much better than that! The date was simply called "Roy and Diz" and was done in Los Angeles on October 29, 1954 and supervised and produced by the great Norman Granz. Blues, good standards and a great ballad make up the tunes you'll hear. Trumpets all out!!!!
